Always enjoy updates on this. 

For general knowledge, how much is the cost of the plating.

Thanks guys!, Haha

Gold zinc passivation (it's electroplating) is pretty cheap. I couldn't comment on actual price per KG (it's sent off by someone else for me) but I get everything done at Terei Brothers in West Auckland.  They are bloody approachable so give them a call and ask any questions directly :-D

 

Also, be cautious as to what you get done- nothing high tensile or spring related (I'm not even too sure about things like seat rails or this handbrake lever.. I generally assume that if it's available electroplated via aftermarket sources eg my rear caliper handbrake brackets then I don't mind doing it myself )

Any input @cletus about electroplating custom made seat rails etc?

As per FB, I didn't get pins, I will turn some m10 bolts down to 11/32nd then blacken them and retain with a c clip.

I just can't handle $32 for 4 pins! I know why this cost this much and I'm fine with that but just not when I'm paying.

The part number I ordered is Product Code: JAOD14551

Finished the instrument panel? I don't quite think I have space for a backlit symbol, but I think I'll grab some of the flat top LED's and use them and a small label for the idiot lights

Hey man. Still need to get a few gauges for it.. to be perfectly honest I can't remember what I decided to do about the indicator lamps..

I think I will use the plastic flat led things, mask off the symbols with professional cut vinyl and spray black then clear (like I did the switches)

I ended up not being happy with those stainless bolt ones.
